TRANSFER TRACKER STATUS: Reports
TUESDAY, 2 PM ET: After months of rumors and reports, it appears the drama around Miguel Almiron's potential transfer could be coming to a close.
Leading English outlet Sky Sports, along with others, confirmed the report later on Tuesday afternoon.
Newcastle and Almiron reportedly reached an agreement on his contract over a month ago, but since then the two clubs have been haggling over the amount of the transfer fee. The failure to get a deal done reportedly resulted in Almiron's agent to depart for Italy earlier this week, as he looked to strike a deal with a Serie A club.
Almiron, 24, tallied 12 goals and 14 assists in 31 games this season and overcame a hamstring injury to return in time for the Audi 2018 MLS Cup Playoffs, where he helped lead his club to an MLS Cup triumph.
